In Loving Memory of Charles Harvey Benning. 

It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Charles H. Benning. He departed this world on Jan. 20, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of love and cherished memories.

Charles (Chuck) Benning was born on March 7, 1949, in Champion, OH to Carl and Genevieve (Shively) Benning. He graduated from Champion High School and went on to proudly serve in the U.S. Army and U.S. Air Force Reserve. Charles loved car shows, traveling, flea/swap markets, collecting, going out to eat, and most of all spending time with his family. He was always tinkering with his cars in his garage and planning his next road trip.
